The New World

The New World ★★★★½

Enough has been said about how Malick betrayed everybody to throw away a conventional love story to make something far more elimental. He was right to. 

That 3rd act still looks like a different planet to me, as opposed to similar indigenous surroundings. We are all Wes Studi's Powhatan Chief drifting through this alien landscape. James Horner's beautiful Glass like repetitive refrains hold it all together.
